(My son Ethan playing against Tucker in a game of 40K)Spring has come and Summer is here and it is a great time to reconnect with friends who went to college and are home as well as finding other ways to get the general gaming community together.
Recently I opened up my home to my fellow gamers and we had a day of Gaming as well as picnicing. We fired up the grill and cooked up some hot dogs and hamburgers, everyone brought something to eat or drink and we had a fun day of it.
(City fight board in my Man-Cave)I'm fortunate that my home is roomy enough for me to set up several gaming tables. We had three full 4'x6' battlefields in the Man-Cave (basement), one on what normally is my dining room table, and a smaller 4'x4' desert board that we used for smaller point values of Warhammer 40K as well as Heavy Gear.

(My Nucoal forces in Heavy Gear)We also were preparing for a convention called Dex-Con, that was held up in Morristown NJ, and while it featrued many RPG and LARPs, there was a growing contingent of Wargaming.
It was nice to see large floor-battle style Apoc Games with huge Ork Gargants and Titans, and a Space Hulk Game, a 40K tournament, Battletech and other games featured.

So I hope the rest of you are having fun this summer, and look for upcoming events from the Berks-Gaming club, as I plan to host some tournaments and Apoc Games as time allows, so we can enjoy the summer indoors and out.
